This is, first of all, a beautiful speaker, both cosmetically and as an aural experience. It is really quick and it growls. I would give this a five star rating, but I am having trouble with the wireless connection. When I run it, after a few seconds it kicks everything off of my home network, blu ray player, tablet, notebook computer, Denon avr -- all of them can't reach the server, so I can't get to the music on my computer. Bad! It's a new Cisco router that I just bought because my old router could not handle the new tablet. So I guess I will just connect with the wire and forget about wireless. (There are still a few things I haven't tried, like moving the transmitter around, and changing the frequency (the transmitter has four settings-- I have tried two so far, but it takes quite a while to get everything back online, so it's a slow process.) If anyone has any suggestions about how to tame the wireless on this beautiful beast, please let me know in comments. I bought this partly because it is wireless, and I will certainly keep it, but . . .
Update: Five stars, no contest! After an hour or so of fiddling with things, everybody on the home network is cooperating and the subwoofer is performing like a champ. This is worth the bucks! A great upgrade for a really fine price. As I said, it's a beautiful speaker, and the cherry veneer finish is perfect, but that is really outweighed by its performance. (My test of a stereo system is the guitar that begins Paul Simon's "Mrs. Robinson," and with the Classia you can almost feel the texture of the string -- gorgeous timbre.)
